During Dampier's first voyage (1679-1691, a circumnavigation), a Mosquito (or Miskito) Indian named William was marooned on Juan Fernández Island. He was later rescued by Dampier. This occured about 25 years before Alexander Selkirk's rescue from the same island.

The Mosquito come from the coast of present-day Nicaragua and Honduras, an area that was a British protectorate from 1655 to 1860.
